Can someone please define what QPF is. I understand that it is a rate of rainfall and is measured in inches, but what I don't know is the time factor for the equation.

So, for example, if QPF is 0.042 inches, is that 0.042 inches per hour or is it something else?

Hi Paul,

During the May 4th Severe Thunderstorm. Watch, I only got the 'County Outline' product. (WOUS64, WOU4).

I think we all want the 'WWUS20, SEL(n)' product.

Note Update: SEL(n) rotates through 10 Updates per day, SEL-0-thru-9. (0-thru-9 are not 'regions'. My boo-boo.)

(See SEL Products/Region Area Link, below.)



This is the text product I want to see (and didn't get on May 4th) when a Severe Thunderstorm Watch was issued (vs only the 'County Outline' product):

Unable the last 2 days to download a forecast. Keep receiving error that forecast is not available for my location in Rhode Island. Is this an app issue or is it a Weather Service issue. Not sure how to resolve. Thanks.

What happened to changelogs? I've received multiple updates from the play store, but can never really tell what changed. It would help our beta testing if we knew where to look for new bugs.

The recent updates to v2.6 have been to further improve weather observations. I want to add a lot more weather stations for the app to use. Right now its an option in the forecast tab.

Hi there, NOAA Weather beta was published on the TestingCatalog and shared with our community of beta testers. Happy testing!

Update today (v2.6.0) adds a cool new feature. You can now view and switch between nearby observation stations! These options are available by simply pressing on the observations and using the more stations or map buttons.

Not only will this give you more info and choices, I think it will also make it more clear where the data is coming from and why it doesn't always match what you see outside or in the forecast data.

The app will remember your station choices. Also, for those of you using the history option on the hourly forecast, this choice will apply there as well since the history also comes from observations.

v2.6.0 also switches again to the new NOAA API re-scheduled for release on April 4th.

Hazardous Weather Outlook has been added back when available with the new API, and is now optionally enabled/disabled in the tab options.

I had a Winter Weather Advisory mostly all afternoon and currently as I type this. Problem is according to the Weather.Gov site, NWS, and various other weather Apps I have... I am under a Winter Storm Warning. Version 2.5.3

I'm running the new update 2.5.0 update.

On NOAA's weather.gov website, there is currently a Hazardous Weather Outlook, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch, and a Special Weather Statement listed for my area. The APP only shows the Severe Thunderstorm Watch.

Is this a bug or are they other statements no longer included?
